Here's how to do it:
1. press the open/close button to open the tray;
2. press the setup button to go to the setup screen;
3. press the right-arrow button until you reach the preferences section of the setup screen;
4. press the 1 3 8 9 keys in that order; a region picker will appear;
5. press the up/down arrow keys to pick a region;
6. press the play button to dismiss the region picker.
I've used this hack about five times to switch between regions 0, 1, and 2. So far it works great!
Note that this player is probably the same as the Sumvision N820, so this hack will probably work on the Sumvision as well.
Also note that the TV type setting on the device is set to "Auto/Multisync" by default instead of NTSC. I've noticed some reports of video problems with new players right out of the box, and that might be why, since most Americans don't have TVs that can do Multisync.
If you have such problems, try switching the setting from "Auto" to "NTSC". The setting doesn't affect what kind of DVDs you can play, just how they get output to the TV.

I used the above hack and can confirm that it does work.

I have a question about how this works? I entered the above hack and changed the region to region 4, but the DVD from New Zealand still does not play. The image comes up, but does not stay focussed, it rolls over the screen vertically. Any ideas on what the problem might be? Thanks for any suggestions.
